New Fishy Goodness!

Recommended Posts

So I haven't been round much lately.. *smacks self* and in a couple of days I go back to uni, no sleep and just try to remain alive! But today I decided to go on a 'fish shop adventure' as I call it, I like to drag people with me but rarely does anyone come willingly so I end up going alone... I only had 2 goldfish up until now and I downgraded (shock horror!!) to a 60gallon from my 110gallon. I wanted to have a go at a planted tank but I now realise I'll never be able to give up the goldies!!

But anywho, I went into my local LFS, the oldest and longest running in Brisbane, which I hadn't been into in, oh I reckon a year or so at least! They had the usual, comets, commons, fantails, tele's, all healthy as always, but they also had a few select black, white and white/red ranchu's!! I've always wanted a white or a black ranchu and today I got to have both! It was like a sign, also the guy serving me was quite a looker :ehh

Anywho here they are! Each are about 2cm each, compared with my 10cm pearlie!

Poor little white fella is missing a couple of scales.

They are a perfect ranchu couple. Really nice. I hope the black one keeps his black for you. Sounds like you had a lucky day, the fish too.

They are adorable! I love the white ranchu, he looks a little mopey kinda like Eeyore to me and who doesn't love Eeyore? Princess Popsicle is a wonderful name he should be proud of his moniker!
